RDF/XML with xml:base with URI with no path component

In developing an RDF/XML parser in Javascript for the tabulator[1],

We tripped over this test case:

associated with issue
in http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-rdf-testcases-20040210/
 aka http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-testcases/

It seems to say that in the case of xml:base declarations of
things like "http://www.example.com" we get
"http://www.example.com/reluri" instead of "http:reluri".

That seems to be add odds with the URI spec
